Beyond the K\"ahler cone

By David R. Morrison


The moduli space of nonlinear $\sigma$-models on a Calabi--Yau manifold contains a complexification of the K\"ahler cone of the manifold. We describe a physically natural analytic continuation process which links the complexified K\"ahler cones of birationally equivalent Calabi--Yau manifolds. The enlarged moduli space includes a complexification of Kawamata's ``movable cone''. We formulate a natural conjecture about the action of the birational automorphism group on this cone.
